I have a legitimate developer account and my UDID's registered (I've had other beta's activate fine), but the servers continue to refuse to activate my iOS6 beta, telling me that I am not subscribed.

Is anyone else having this problem?

I'm sure it's not "bricked" you can downgrade


This has happened before.

Stop and think "Me and how many other people are flooding the activation servers right now to try out this shiny new beta?!?!?!"

Wait...

I'm having the exact same problem. I added my iphone's id this morning, but it still won't work. I just downgraded to 5.1. I might wait a while to do iOS 6 Beta

It usually takes 24 hours for the udid to activate after it is first added.

Takes a lot less time. People need to just chill out.

Occasionally, though I've had them go right away. However, this UDID has been active on my account for... almost 6 months now.

So wait. You think you're the only person in the world activating your OS6 beta right now?

My 4s activated fine, but my new iPad will not activate. We will just have to be patient I guess.

No, I'm fairly certain that I'm not. However, it's a relevant question: there should be no reason that a developer with a registered UDID that's activated successfully on prior occasion should receive an error regarding registration, or lack thereof. Finding out if this is a widespread issue, or an isolated incident, is a relevant inquiry, although I genuinely appreciate your advice to "just wait" - it was extremely helpful, and I'm not sure I would have come up with such a brilliant solution on my own. Cheers!

Contrarily, my iPad 3 activated just fine - and it's been registered for less time than my iPhone. I wonder if this is primarily an iPhone issue?

Edit: I see that people are having iPad activation issues as well.

Well, I think I will hold off on installing on my iPad until someone lets us know that they could activate.

Me.

I'm downgrading to 5.1.1 right now so the servers have a chance to catch up.

I've tried activating my 4s and my 3rd gen iPad and am having the same issue. Frustrating.

They claim you can't downgrade. Is there a method?

and for me: :(

I guess everyone and their dog is trying to activate now and it's overloading the servers.

I'm on Wifi iPad 3rd gen. with valid developers account.

I will post again if/when I'm successful activating.

I put my phone into restore mode (unplug, turn off, home home button while plugging in) and restored to 5.1.1 just fine.

I restored my iPod Touch 4th Gen this morning and it activated fine, in fact it did it within seconds, the fastest activation of the betas I've seen. Maybe after so many people activated, it's goten weird, but it worked for my at about 1:05 PM PT.

You can downgrade if you were on a developer beta, but on a general public release, your right, you can't. (Unless you jailbreak your iOS device and save its SHSH blobs)

I had the same activation problem. I kept hitting the home button at the activation error screen and chose "start over". My phone just accepted the activation a few minutes ago. You will have to be patient if you get this error. Don't downgrade back to 5.1.1.

Your UDID will eventually catch up on Apple's servers. My phone was "bricked" for a few hours.

Yes, I did. 10.6.3

My 4S refused to activate. I restored back to 5.1.1 (power off, unplug, hold home, plug in, restore), then hit upgrade to 6.0 and it worked ok.
